It does look like bone of some sort but a tooth I would say no. It is fractured surface and the smooth spots are right next to the sharp spots. If you turn it in to the authorities and it turns out to be human then you will be tied up with them for some time showing them just where you found it and such. Tom and I have been through it and you can't find gold while talking to them.
To me looks like a rib bone. No expert.
I've found a few cow skeletons and cow bones in the desert.
Does not look like a tooth to me and I have several. Could be bone piece, take a lighter to it and see if it smokes or burns if it does it is not a petrified piece.
My vote is for very old ivory tusk due to center being solid.
I to lean to ivory or tooth due to there being a whole specimen segment and showing no place for marrow to have been?
Is there anyway to test it to see if it is a a tusk or a tooth
